Default Losi / B4 tires

Can the losi front tires be used on the b4 rim, are the dimensions the same, will it change the way the car handlels ?

it will alter handlin depending on what surface, and compound you get, but that also goes for the pro-lines.

and yes they will mount up to the b4 rims, all i use is the losi fronts at my local track....(pink compound)

Losi tires have a slightly wider bead than Proline. You will find it easier to mount them to Proline/Associated rims if you trim the bead 1-2mm narrower so they fit in the rims better.

Losi FRONT tires fit perfectly fine on B4 rims. Whether or not to use them depends on track conditions.

I agree with Davidka....makes it much easier and nicer to mount them on associated or proline rims if you trim the inner bead by a couple of millimeters....they don't fit quite as nicely if you dont...
